Further Biographical Context for Jean V. Mackay
Born in 1909, Jean V. Mackay's creative work was largely influenced by the 1920s. The notable innovations formed in the early years of the 20th century were matured further in the 1920s and 1930s. This period began the careers of many radical and inspiring practitioners in the pictorial arts. However it was a time of reflection following the horrors of the First World War, and significant shifts in politics took place across the world. The philosophy of Marxism was widespread among artist communities and groups. Founded in 1919, the Bauhaus became an essential place for the development of ideas concerning the unification of art, craft and design – an idea which became known as the Gesamtkunstwerk.
